The Grand Challenge

We are living in an age of innovation, an unprecedented era of technological progress and prosperity driven by energy.

However, most of this energy comes from fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas that account for a majority of global carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions. We know that CO₂ emissions are a leading contributor to climate change, and the world will need a portfolio of solutions to address it.

How to Win

The winning team will convert the most CO₂ into products with the highest value as determined by:

1. How much CO₂ they convert 

2. The net value of their products
